A lightweight battle between WEC import Danny Castillo and Jacob Volkmann has been added to UFC on Versus 5. UFC President Dana White announced the match-up today.
Castillo is coming off a recent victory over Joe Stevenson at UFC on Versus 3 and will be looking for his fourth victory in a row. The Team Alpha Male fighter is 11-3 overall and last lost to Anthony Pettis at WEC 47.
Volkmann is coming off a recent split decision victory over Anthony McKee at UFC 125 but made more headlines for criticizing President Barack Obama in the post-fight interview. Volkmann will be looking to extend his current win streak to three after losing to Martin Kampmann at UFC 108.
UFC on Versus 5 will take place August 14 and will take place at the Bradley Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The event is expected to be headlined by a recently announced lightweight bout between lightweight contenders Jim Miller and Ben Henderson.
